An eye-opening, heart-rending tale of love, honor, and betrayal from veteran foreign-news correspondent Atia Abawi
Fatima is a Hazara girl,
raised to be obedient and dutiful. Samiullah is a Pashtun boy raised to defend
the traditions of his tribe. They were not meant to fall in love. But they do.
And the story that follows shows both the beauty and the violence in
current-day Afghanistan as Fatima and Samiullah fight their families, their
cultures, and the Taliban to stay together.
Based on the people Atia Abawi met
and the events she covered during her nearly five years in Afghanistan, this
stunning novel is a must-read for anyone who has lived during America’s war in
Afghanistan. Perfect for fans of Patricia
McCormick, Linda Sue Park, and Khaled Hosseini, this story will stay with
readers for a long time to come. Download and start listening now!
